    Some of the best wings around. Jalapeño Buffalo sauce is my favorite -- more flavor than heat even though the name suggests otherwise

    Dry wings and the sauce doesn't help. If you do go, look in the mail for coupons.

    Really enjoyed the Garlic Buffalo Wings. Even though they are mild, they still have a bite. Especially the ones sitting in the sauce at the bottom.

    Usually always have good wings but occasionally they've been overcooked & chewy, gross. Service has never been great.
